The Modified Fisher Scale

This is a research study to determine the inter-rater reliability of the modified Fisher Scale (mFS). There is currently no formalized training program used to validate the ability to score the modified Fisher Scale on a CT scan. This scale is variably used across institutions to grade initial CT scans and in research, but inter-rater reliability has never been proven.

Target Audience: U.S. Based Physicians
Duration: 20 minutes
Survey Closes: September 1, 2019

Use of Anti-Epileptic Drugs in Complicated Mild TBI

Existing care guidelines provide guidance on the administration (or lack thereof) of anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) after uncomplicated mild TBI (concussion) and severe TBI, but guidelines and guidance on the use of AEDs after complicated mild TBI (mild TBI with a positive head computed tomography scan) is lacking. Use of AEDs in these situations is often governed by clinical judgement and expertise. This study is designed to characterize patterns of use of AEDs in complicated mild TBI, factors that influence decision making, and to identify differences in practice patterns across specialties and geographic regions

Target Audience: Physicians and trainees in a range of specialties across multiple geographic locations
Duration: 7-10 minutes

Target Audience: Physicians and trainees in a range of specialties across multiple geographic locations
Duration: 10-15 minutes
